Dick finished the first batch of 'for sale' crochet hooks. Each is made individually by hand and polished to a high gloss. The handles are made from various hardwoods and the thumbpads are carved from ivory. These hooks are similar in style to the Clover Soft Touch hooks, which I find more comfortable than traditional round hooks. The three white hooks in the middle of the photo are hand carved from (pre-ban) elephant ivory.
